  • Bajaj Pulsar 125 drum has been discontinued due to low demand.
  • Its Solar Red and Platinum Silver color options have also been discontinued.
  • Bajaj Pulsar 125 is now only available in disc variant which is priced at Rs 66,618 (ex-showroom, Delhi).


Bajaj Auto has discontinued the Pulsar 125 disc variant only after two months of its launch in India. If you recall, the company launched the Pulsar 125 in the disc as well as a drum variant only a few months back, but seeing the low demand, the company has decided to do away with the latter.

The Bajaj Pulsar 125 drum has been removed from the official price list on the website which currently only displays the Pulsar 125 disc priced at Rs 66,618 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The drum, obviously, retailed at a lower price of Rs 64,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This marginal price difference of Rs 2,618, has encouraged customers to opt for the disc variant, thus reducing the demand of the drum model.

At the same time, Bajaj Auto has also taken down the Solar Red and Platinum Silver color options from the Pulsar 125. The bike is now only available in the Neon Blue paint scheme.

There was no difference between both the bikes in terms of mechanicals, and features. The Bajaj Pulsar 125 sources its motive power from a 124.4 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which is rated to deliver 12 bhp of maximum power at 8,500 rpm and 11 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.

The engine comes mated to a 5-speed constant-mesh transmission. Save for the engine, the Pulsar 125 and higher placed Pulsar 150, are both similar bikes. 

Bajaj Auto has announced in the past that it will retain the Pulsar 125 in the BS-VI era and will use the carburetor fuel delivery system instead of the electronic fuel injection to keep the costs low. This will allow the overall costs to remain considerably unaffected even post the BS-VI upgrades.

The Bajaj Pulsar 125 rivals the likes of Honda SP 125 and Hero Glamour.
